“I found the AT group workshops with Maaike particularly helpful in applying AT principles to practising and in working out lasting solutions for stubborn technical issues. Performing in front of colleagues while consciously applying these principles, followed by constructive feedback, was informative and very helpful to my playing. It helped develop a greater sense of control within the realm of freedom.”
